Returning Home

Phillies Alumni keep coming back.

Last year, Mark Parent returned as the Phillies’ manager at Lakewood.  He’s moving up to Reading in 2011. Three second basemen got in line recently: Juan Samuel (major league coach), Ryne Sandberg (Lehigh Valley manager) and Mickey Morandini (Williamsport manager).

Two other former Phillies second basemen are also looking for jobs: Manny Trillo and Mariano Duncan.

Happy Birthday
Monday: OF Alex Pitko turned 96, the second oldest Phillies Alumnus.  He played in 1938.  The day also saw Greg Luzinski turn 60.  Soon a senior citizen will be manning Bull’s BBQ.

Thanksgiving this year means three former Phillies will also be celebrating birthdays the same day: C-CH Mike Ryan, 69 (1968-73; 1980-95); LHP Mark Davis, 46 (1980-81;1993), OF Mark Whiten, 44 (1995-96).
